How to claim for an industrial injury with Accident Advice Helpline
If you dread the thought of taking legal action against the person or persons who caused your injury then take heart from the following information. How to claim for an industrial injury might be something that’s worrying you. We hope to allay your fears.
First of all, remember that everyone believes in justice. You’re no different to anyone else if you feel aggrieved that you’re suffering because of someone else’s negligence. Even though it was an accident, you’re the one who suffered through no fault of your own.
Perhaps you think you might put your job at risk if you claim against your employer. This won’t be the case. Your employer can’t, by law, dismiss you for making a compensation claim. If he does then that’s another legal case he’ll have to deal with.

How to claim for an industrial injury: The evidence you need
